Oakberry Trees - History


Oakberry Farm has been a working farm for many years, mainly growing arable crops. In 1998 a small area of land was used to plant Christmas Trees. At that time it was not anticipated that the Christmas Tree venture would amount to selling more than those few trees, but from the very first Christmas that we began trading it became obvious that we could sell far more trees than we had planted.

 

Since then, each year many hundreds and then thousands of tiny trees have been transplanted from special nurseries to be grown on at Oakberry Farm. Great care is taken to look after the young trees, feeding them, weeding them and trimming them to shape as they grow. We now have several thousand trees available for sale every year.

 

It has always been our aim to sell only the best quality trees possible, whether actually grown at Oakberry Farm or those bought in to offer as wide a range as possible. Each year from the beginning of December until Christmas Eve ‘Oakberry Trees’ comes to life, selling Christmas Trees to the public.

 

A large Barn converted each season allows for an extensive and well lit display area containing trees of many varieties, shapes and sizes. In the barn you will also find our large range of water retaining tree stands, Christmas lights, Festive wreaths made from our own foliage and fresh mistletoe. Helpful assistance and advice is always close at hand should you need it choosing just that tree.

 

Since 1998 we have been planting thousands of trees on land previously used for other farm crops. After 12 years of planting, in 2010 we have finally managed to completely clear a tree plot and replant it with tiny new trees…getting the old roots out proved to be a difficult task!
